I find it funny that he can speak about “the importance of women” but then cast a known abuser as a major role in his movie. A. Hammer comes from a long line of abusers and has proven to be one himself. Gross.

I think it’s pretty obvious the cops only do things or care when someone dies. That’s the point. When DV or r*pe happens that’s what it looks like.

Amanda is consistently terrible and I've never once listened to an episode wishing she somehow participated. She makes everything worse and has awful opinions.

Hello World

Good lord, I hope they please stop having Adam Nayman on the podcast. What a miserable joyless person. I really feel bad for his inability to enjoy anything ever.

You stupid cunt. The law in Florida protects children against leftist perverts like yourself. Sexual indoctrination of children is a crime punishable by death. I hope someone kills you soon you fucking piece of shit.

popular art us still art, but regardless if how emotionally manipulative (and effective) Spider-Man NWH, it doesn't belong in any best picture conversation. It doesn't do anything that actual Oscar winner Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse didnt already fo better. Let the Marvel movies run the table at the MTV and People's Choice award shows. Let the grown ups have the Oscars. please. Do it for Marty!
